. if they manage to defeat this vote today, this is going to be a big, big problem for markets. if they don't, you may see markets continue to tread water until there is a solution to this. now, remember, speaker boehner's plan is not likely one that is going to pass the senate. not likely one that is going to get past the president. the bottom line if there is some sense boehner has better control of h over hi members you may see markets allowing a little bit more time. right now markets are largely relaxing but ready to move if this doesn't go the right way. >> thanks, guys. >>> at the bottom of the hour, we will go to wall street for the opening bell and answer a question many of us have right now -- should we take our money out of the stock exchange and where do we put it if so. we will talk to a financial analyst about that. >>> cnn obtained dramatic new video taken minutes after the bombing of the government buildings in norway. it was shot by a hamburg who works in oslo and driving through a tunnel beneath the city's government plaza when the bomb went off. eight people killed. he recorded
